Visit another country, with friends, from home?

VISO Places

Are you studying a foreign language or reading about another culture?  Maybe you can visit the country in person some day, or maybe it is a place that is hard to reach.  In the mean time, here is an app for experiencing the country through virtual reality. 

 

VISO PLACES

 

Through the power of Google's massive collection of mapped locations you can see everything from your childhood home to your next planned vacation destination

VISO Places' social features allow you to show your friends the places you've been. Point things out, lead a group, and speak to each other through voice chat.

Learn about what's around you easily and instantly with location-aware Wikipedia integration.  With a library of nearly 3000 amazing locations including underwater scenes and mountaintops finding things worth seeing has never been easier.  Choose an audio preset to match your environment for a more immersive experience.

  • Intuitive control scheme for the XBox 360 controller or keyboard and mouse.

  • Generate a panoramic timelapse video along any road covered by Street View.

  • Save your favorite places to revisit them later or show them to your friends.

  • Typing the name of a place you want to see while wearing a head mounted display can be tricky. That's why we've implemented a virtual keyboard.

  • Use the map, search, pick a place from our list, move to a friend's location, or jump to a random panorama near your current position or from our collection. Click to teleport or move step by step. Getting around has never been eaiser.
